Bona Law Members Help Lead the 2024 ABA Antitrust Law Section Spring Meeting


Authors: Steve Cernak, Kristen Harris, Pat Pascarella, Ruth Glaeser, Luis Blanquez

The American Bar Association Antitrust Law Section’s annual Spring Meeting in Washington DC is April 10-12 this year. Each year, the Spring Meeting has dozens of panels and events and generates numerous receptions — formal and informal — as about 4000 antitrust practitioners and enforcers flock to Washington. It is the place to be for antitrust and consumer protection lawyers and economists — so, of course, Bona Law professionals will play a leading role.

Steve Cernak will be moderating a panel of the Deputy Assistant Attorneys General of the US Department of Justice Antitrust Division on Wednesday morning. As Chair-Elect of the Section, Cernak has helped organize this Spring Meeting and is already hard at work on all the Section’s programming for the Section year starting in August.

Kristen Harris will be moderating a panel on Web3, blockchain, and exclusionary conduct on Wednesday afternoon. Harris also serves as Cernak’s Counsel to the Chair-Elect. Luis Blanquez helped organize this panel in his role as Vice Chair of the Section’s Distribution and Franchising Committee.

Bona Law members Pat Pascarella and Ruth Glaeser will also be attending the meeting. If you will be at the meeting or even just in Washington that week, let us know so we can get together. One possibility: The Section’s newly revamped Thursday evening dinner, now “Party with a Purpose.” Buy a ticket, consider a contribution to one or more of the worthwhile charities, and be sure to stop by the Bona Law high top table to say hello!
